Good recipe! I've made this a couple of times, each time following the spirit of the recipe, but not the letter. I wanted the flavors of this recipe, but a more stew-like consistency. Both times I have used more sweet potato and chickpeas, a little less broth, and no rice, and it still turned out delicious. I also add a bit of red wine vinegar and brown sugar, which gives it a bit more tang and sweetness. I'm sure I use lots more spice than the recipe called for--I don't use measuring spoons and season to taste. The first time I made it, I used zucchini, which was great, but the second time I didn't have zucchini around. Instead, I tossed in a bunch of pieces of kale at the very end and took the soup off the heat. The kale wilted and cooked a bit but still had body to it and wasn't all mush. This is a good substitution and I definitely recommend it for someone trying to mix this up a little (or, as in our case, use a bunch of kale we got from a CSA share).
